As I am writing this it is spring and new life is apparent everywhere you look. Grass is getting a good start birds are chirping with joyful sounds, we just love this time of year.
The anticipation and excitement that comes with the hope of a new season is filled with hopeful promise that this will be a great year! Transition is a great thing isn't it? Why then do we resist it so much in our lives? The fact is that we and the environment we live in are in a continuous state of transition. We are either developing or declining because nothing stays the same here on this earth.
To resist the executable change we are experiencing in our lives creates conflict and who needs more of that? I sure don't and I'm pretty sure you don't either unless you practice law. Then you welcome it because it is job security. In reality as much as none of us like it we will experience it from time to time so we might as well accept it for what it is, change what we can then forgive the rest and roll on!
Some changes are warm and fuzzy feeling like new born foals and calves and puppy's and kittens and human baby’s. While others are down right frightening like the losses such as a divorce or financial issues or health problems or worse the loss of some one you love. This is life as we know it here on this planet. Some how though, change wins out and we pick back up and march on day by day. This is why the apostle Paul tells us to think on things that are good and hopeful and loving and kind which are the things of the Spirit. We are simply passing through on our journey here on earth, we came from being perfect before we were born and are headed to perfection when we pass in between we live in imperfection.
There are universal laws at play that we cannot deny that effect our lives such as gravity, the law of motion, the law of vibration and the law of relativity. One law that we tend to forget about is that what ever you focus on tends to increase. So then don't focus on the weeds that life has for you but rather focus on the good things that Paul tells us to and live in hope and love and peace and be joyful so that you will attract more of that into your life!
Philippians 4:8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise… NLT
Hope Is Alive!
